KDE SC 4.4 RC3 Released

With the number of fixes still going into the 4.4 branch after RC2 last week, the release managers have decided to pop another release candidate in between. Last night, Dirk tagged KDE Software Compilation 4.4 RC3, and we're releasing it today already. Overall the release is shaping up nicely, with many bugs still being squashed even in this late phase. Thanks everybody for participating in making KDE SC 4.4 a solid release.

KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Release Candidate 1 Available

KDE has made the first release candidate of the KDE Software Compilation 4.4 available. The new features of KDE SC 4.4.0 can be found in the official release announcement. A more detailed list is available on TechBase. Please report bugs you find in this release to KDE's Bugzilla.
The first KDE SC (KDE SC, what's that?) release (albeit not a stable one) is the first release candidate for the upcoming KDE Software Compilation 4.4.0 which will be released on February 9th. In between, there is a second release candidate planned already, RC2, on 20th January. In the 4.4 beta cycle, we have reduced the time it takes us to package and deliver the test releases, so our testers get the freshest tarballs ever, leading to shorter test-and-fix cycles. KDE SC 4.4.0 is also the first release to be based on Qt 4.6 which became available in December. We have therefore decided to insert another release candidate to make sure we deliver the best KDE Software Compilation to date with KDE SC 4.4.0.

Repositioning the KDE Brand

KDE has changed over the past 13 years. The application framework has grown, matured and gone cross-platform, as have the applications. Strong growth in our community has created an increasingly diverse and large set of high-quality applications.

In the process, KDE's identity has shifted from being simply a desktop environment to representing a global community that creates a remarkably rich body of free software targeted for use by people everywhere.

KDE is no longer software created by people, but people who create software.

To be able to communicate this clearly in our messaging, it is necessary to reposition the KDE brand so that it reflects the reality. We therefore also need distinct brands for the products we produce. Read on for details of our repositioning of the KDE brand.
